From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars with satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing A-Amen, I, I'm alive (I'm alive)
Singing A-Amen, I, I'm alive

[Chorus:]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day, when nobody died

And I'm singing
A, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I, I'm alive

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
Would show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing A-Amen, I, I'm alive (I'm alive)
Singing A-Amen, I, I'm alive

[Chorus x2]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day, when nobody died

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day, when nobody die ahha ahha ahhh ahd...

When nobody die ahha ahha ahhh ahd...

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

[Chorus x2]
If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day, when nobody died

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day, when nobody die ahha ahha ahhh ahd...

We'd see the day, we'd see the day
When nobody die ahha ahha ahhhh ahd...
We'd see the day, we'd see the day,
When nobody die ahha ahha ahhhh ahd...
We'd see the day (died) when nobody died

    They say a storm or a hurrincane can originate from the flapping of a butterflies wings in the righ condition. I would imagine that a movement towards what the world should be can start the same way.
    The biggest movements start with the smallest actions. No need to save the world. Just look towards your neighbor and give a helping hand. That will resonate into something bigger. Let us stop turning our backs.
    When some asks. Who cares. Maybe its time for us to raise our hands and say. "I do."
    I swear on this day forward that I will care. I will not turn my back on those that I can help no matter how big or how small. I will teach my kids to love. I will be part of the solution.

    I think it's saying that if just even one person cared the world would be a better place and that if maybe everyone cared it would be an amazing place with murders and no deaths (even though that's not possible.) and if no one lied we wouldn't have to be careful of everyone and spend our time worrying that they could be lying. And if we just swallowed our pride and did the right thing the world could be a better place (I sooo love this song and I looove nickleback the rock like a rock-star.)

    To me it means that the smallest of things even if tey are done by one man or woman can have a huge effect on the world and that we must show others that we are not here to fight and teach them to get along with everyone even if it means we put our lives on the line for the sake of a better future because once youve done something there is no going back and that you must not relie on everyone all the time but the same with yourself becuase you must work together to become stronger and as long as you have people around you and in you rheart you are never truly alone.

    Ah Nickleback. What am I to say about them. They are the reason to why I get up everyday. Just pop in a cd or turn on my mp3 and there they are. I'm not an obsessed fan I just love their music. Especially "If everyone cared". The first time I heard it was on the radio. I knew after hearing that I must have it. They're an inspiration to me. Well I got to go I'm in class.
